At Funding U we believe that high-achieving college students – regardless of family income - deserve the resources needed to complete their degree and get started on their career goals.
Young consumers - particularly those who grew up in low- or moderate-income households - are shut out by the bank requirements for co-signers and/or income.
We started Funding U to provide a loan that students can get on their own, based on hard work, tenacity, and focus - not based on the income level or credit score of a loan cosigner. We wish no one needed student loans. But, in a world in which college costs are high, financial aid is limited, federal loans have small caps, and banks won’t provide loans without a cosigner, we chose to offer a solution.
We love technology, value human honesty and ‘real’ answers, and we always want feedback. But, most of all, we are honored to be part of our borrowers’ journeys towards their academic goals and professional dreams.
